I cut it out and it looked good height wise. But seemed about 3/16 short width wise. 

Can you post a photo? Did you check the print out to see if was printed at full scale in both directions?

I just reprinted it 2 more times.  The file I downloaded came out as a PDF that was set for "fit page", which was 94.  I increased that to 100% and it looked like by height and width moved.  I will get pictures for you tonight when I get home from work.  

Thanks again for double checking this...I think I'm doing it right, but have no experience with CNC

Here are the pictures.   I checked again and it seems like I printed it at 100%.  But then again,  I do juvenile probation work and engineering is foreign to me.

Forgot to ask about the holes. I have a lot of projects going. Carefully punch those out to see if they line up. Sorry for all the back an forth. Prefer we continue the conversation via email.  Hein  at  DIYvan  .   com

installing our new prop.  My method is to put on the puller, tighten the nut to put some tension on it and then gently heat the propeller with a propane torch until it expands enough to pop loose. Works great and no need to really crank down on the puller nut or bang on anything with a hammer.

New prop was not very well de-burred so I'll clean up the sharp edges with some 200 grit.

Having a great time on the river so far this summer.  Little issue is that our hour meter quit. I'm pretty it was not factory because of how and where  it was spliced in.  -kind of funky.

Can anyone share where the OEM hour meter would have been and connected?

We've been out riding quite a few times this summer.  More hot glassy days on the river this season.

August fun. Alex (soon to be my son-in-law) scoring a 360 on the smokey Columbia.

Notice how he doesn't "claim it".  Chill dude, Alex.

Got a little off kilter when loading the boat on the trailer and snapped one of the guide pole tubes inside the covers.  I had previously recovered them with better cushion material so no damage to the boat but had to make a new guide tube.

I purchased some new 2" ID ABS pipe and proceeded to cover it with 3/8" thick 2lb. density mini-cell closed cell foam which we also use under plywood floor in vans. Great material for this purpose as well.  Photo below is of the old broken tube and some of the materials for making new one.

Sprayed ABS tube and mini-cell with 3M 90 contact cement and then wrapped it. The bevel cut edge will let me overlap the end later.

more spray glue for the overlap.

overlap.

Below. Carefully trim excess. Will sand smooth later.

making some foam end caps.  2 layers for good protection and this also seals the ends so the tubes will trap air and bob up when the trailer goes into the water. This is important.

foam cover trued and cleaned up with some 80 grit:

Top end wrapped with some heavy tape for added protection. When things go wrong this is what the hull hits so extra protection here is vital.

Ready to go out to the barn, put the cover sleeves back on and install the new guide tube over the steel tubes.

Put the covers back on and wrapped/glued the cut off end of a wetsuit sleeve over the top of the guide for further protection and to keep the covers from sliding down.

3M 90 adhesive:

Previously added these collars (photo below) so the tubes won't jamb against the welded on bumps. That keeps the tubes from bobbing up. We will make more of these and will list on our ebay store.  It's just a snug fitting ring CNC'd out of plastic.

All done. Thanks for following along. We do stock the Minicell foam if you can't find it locally. I have some extra ABS pipe so willing to make some of these tube covers for those who would rather buy than DIY.

All the best,

Hein

 I wonder if you could run the outer baffle and the inner baffle from ggb or whatever.I already have the outer one.

My cowl just covers the sideswipe port. You could definitely also put a silencer (I like the ggb inserts) inside the hose.

We had a ballast drain pump fail so needed to empty our tank with our backup pump connected to the vent lines. That took some fiddling at the dock. As we drained the tank the boat came up in the water and the cowl bumped the bottom of the dock wrapper.  It broke the cowl which is weak enough to not cause any damage to the boat.  So I ordered and new 3D printed cowl which arrived in a few days. Back on the water within the week!

We had a foil rider join us during our last sessions.  He was towed in by the PWC and then rode our wave.

Thats pretty cool. My buddy got a foil a few months ago, was fun to do something different tho you gotta be pretty careful to not get hurt. I got twisted up on the thing about a month ago, was unable to bail off in time and landed on the metal mast...made a nice gash in my shin, still wearing the scar! Lesson learned tho...when a foil gets squirrely, bail off. You can "force" a foil to come around cause of that mast (least I am not able to yet).

Thanks for your reply, Infinity.  Appreciate your words of caution. There are a lot of foils around here with the windsports and SUP foiling. A number of pro level guys like our friend in the video.  We have an LP carbon foil and Slingshot hoverglide foil but just haven't had the gumption to give it a go. I suffered a shoulder injury right after I bought the LP (not related) so figured I better wait until I got stronger before paying my dues on a foil. We picked up the hoverglide with a shorter mast to learn on. We also ride kites so learning behind the boat has added benefit going forward. After seeing this guy we are all totally committed to foiling next season.  We might get out a few more times but days are getting shorter/cooler so will dedicate T.O.W. to wakesurfing.

All the best, Hein

Happy New Year!

To get ready for a fun 2019, I changed the oil in the boat.  I use a vacuum pump and reservoir to suck the oil out. Then empty the reservoir into milk jugs.  Happy to have the remote filter. I put a plastic bag over the filter and then remove it. Even then, it's tough not to get some spillage in the bilge.  409 to clean that up.  Oil used is Royal Purple full synthetic 10W-40.

Plan on changing the oil in the transmission (not v-drive gear box) this year. Anyone have an fluid recommendation?

All the best,

Hein

Put up some more board racks while the oil was being sucked out.  Can't have too many boards!

I change my engine oil the same way...for any misc spillage, I use 2) plastic grocery bags doubled up with some paper towels in it and set that down in the bilge under the filter, that way if some oil gets out of my gallon zip lock while removing the filter, it drips down into the plastic bags so there is no mess. Has worked well for me.

Do you have your engine manual that tells you the Trans oil recommended? My ZR409 calls for Dexron III, which is harder to find now in its true form since very few modern engines use it, the only stuff I could find at local places like Advance Auto, NAPA, etc....was not actually Dex III, but said "it was compatible". That made me nervous and I did not want to use anything that was exactly the correct stuff. My guess is that your engine would call for the same trans oil?

I ended up finding some on Amazon and buying June 21st of 2018 (link below). I paid $5.81 each as an "add on item", I see the price has since gone up since then to 11.70, course mine only needed 2 quarts. Its Chevron 39770 MD-3.

Thanks for the tips, Infinity. I double bag with paper towels but then have trouble grabbing the filter to spin it off.  It get's quite slippery inside the bags and I always manage to spill a little oil. Emptying the vacuum tank into the milk jugs is nice.

For the transmission, I have a case of RP Max ATF which is compatible with Dexron III so will use that.

Also ordered a check valves for the 1" fill line running to the bow bag.  Searched for an hour trying to find some that are more affordable than the ones ballast bag folks sell.  Whale makes some that appear good but decided on these instead:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/TRUDESIGN-One-Way-Hose-Connector-Non-return-Valve-1-25mm/142477839142

Will report how they look and work when I receive them. (guess I got the last ones from that seller)

All the best,

Hein
